FWD question: which year/model has FWD?

I am just curious for 2010-2018 XC60, I understand most of these XC60's are AWD.

Re: Alternator Pulley Fell Off Topic is solved

Just checked FCPEuro, mostly rebuilt. Been there done that, alternator is one item I always go new bc when it fails, you are stranded. Early models vs late models use different alternators. Google "Bosch AL0820N "..."N" is new. This is the 140A. The alternative is AL0756N , which is the 120A type. T...

Re: 2006, XC90 2.5T no start , fuel delivery?

I wonder what people like Xemodex or Yagger does for the CEM.
My guess is something simple bc they can turn around in one day.
Maybe reheat in the oven at ___ temp and ___ minutes to resolder the joints.
Maybe replace 1-2 relays etc.

Wonder if this kind of job (rebuilding CEM) can be done at home.

Re: Alternator Pulley Fell Off Topic is solved

Agree with new alternator. Pulley: life is about 140K-160K as you have learned. Alternator lifespan is about 180K-200K (bearings, brushes etc.), the VR can fail any time between 100K-200K. So a brand-new alternator is the way to go, less future headache. I guess you can return the pulley (FCPEURO 30...

Re: bleeding brakes with wheels on

Yes, Have done it many times bc I don't enjoy jacking the car up and remove the wheels. - I use my modified ATE cap + air compressor at 10 psi. - Front tires on wood ramps bc the ground clearance is low in the front. The Rear: leave it at ground level. I posted info and photos in this forum. Tip: us...

Re: Tool Loaning

I posted info on using PVC Plumbing coupler ($2) at Home Depot.
